Purdue Next Step Survey Data

Each year, the Center for Career Opportunities collects career outcome information from the May graduating class of the West Lafayette campus for students receiving baccalaureate degrees. Data are gathered during the first six months after graduation primarily through an online survey and phone calling by CCO and academic departmental staff. For the last several years, the knowledge rate obtained has varied from 85-90% which is one of the best rates in the nation for comparable institutions.  Caution must be taken not to generalize the findings to the entire population of degree recipients.
